At many trading companies, the dynamics are mainly in the orders. On both the purchasing and sales sides, orders are placed with different customers/suppliers with different payment agreements and constantly changing delivery dates.

In the practice of our cashflow planning, it appears to be particularly effective to connect to this information and have the liquidity effects calculated automatically. This then produces the following dashboard.

The imported orders are now added to the dashboard and are made visible as green columns. The delivery date is now designated as the future invoice date. The customer’s payment term is then automatically taken as the starting point for the weekly cashflow-planning.

We now have an online link with Exact Online, Exact Globe and AFAS to read these orders. A good second option is to download Excel files and to base your cashflowplanning on this. This connection takes into account the smallest details. For example, if the order consists of several partial deliveries, these will be read as order lines and all specifications will be calculated.
